help - rebuilding the pops on a stern galaxy and need a replacement pair of the whitish nylon spacers that support the actual bumper bodies, not sure if what i currently have is correct or not since this is the first one of these i have seen like this, checked most of the parts suppliers and cannot find anything that looks like it

is this original factory set-up with the brass washers and nylon spacers?

Those were probably added after the fact by someone to fix a broken part.

thanks & thats what i was thinking, all three pops are the same and unfortunately they are not the same thumper bumper type you have in your detail

no wonder they didn't feel right - not the correct parts, i think the correct factory part number for the spacer used on this type of pop is
4A-123-1 which i can't find it either

looks i will have to fab something up

Stern part 4A-123-16 is a simple plastic spacer 1/2" tall. They have the nasty habit of disappearing whenever the bumper is disassembled. They also can probably be squashed by overtightening the screws.

also... Keep those nylon bushings around - they might come in handy sometime.

Stern Pop bumper assembly # B-196-1 uses two of the nylon spacers # 4A-123-16 (actually they are nylon flanged bushings you can get at Ace Hardware) and two # 8 flat washers.

Looks exactly like my Seawitch uses. I just rebuilt mine...

I don't think this one has been apart. It looks like the one in the book.

i picked up some replaces from PBR - white posts in picture, probably same if not very similar to the original factory spacers and i also found several things at Ace hardware that would have worked just as well - thanks for the help!
